Rocket’s Star PJ Tucker Adds Shoe Designer to Resume with Release of ‘Urchin Rocks” Guiseppe Zanotti Collaboration

Urchin RocksOn Sunday night, PJ Tucker of the Houston Rockets hosted an exclusive event with a star studded guest list for the launch of his ‘Urchin Rocks’ sneaker with Guiseppe Zanotti

The red carpet was rolled out and the champagne was in heavy rotation on Monday to celebrate the long anticipated launch of the ‘Urchin Rocks’ sneaker – a collaboration between Houston’s own PJ Tucker and international design house Guiseppe Zanotti. Tucker is the arguable king of sneakers in the NBA, with over 4,000 pairs in his closet, so it is no surprise that he now has his very own pair to add to that collection!

Tucker gifted each of his teammates with their very own pair of Urchin Rocks in the signature Houston Rockets team colors. The elevated sole with spike detailing and zipper embellishments, makes these sleek sneakers all that much more eye-catching.

While the shoes were the true stars of the show, the energy in the store could not have been any higher. Music from a DJ bumping through the speakers and Veuve Clicquot flowing freely in Baccarat glasses, the night was one for the books!

They kept the party going outside, with luxurious seating areas equipped with velvet chairs and Dyptique candles! The glam was accompanied by game, with arcade style video games and dual basketball games for everyone to enjoy a little friendly competition. For an event that mixed fashion with basketball, every detail was thoroughly thought through making the event as perfect as could be!
